Study Guide: Geography 1001, Section 2, Exam 4
Studying the terms and concepts in this list should help you be well-prepared for Exam Four on
Thursday, May 13
at 3:00 PM.
The test will draw from the six class lectures on North America and
Louisiana, including the documentary
and Alex’s guest lecture on Canada’s
cultural and social geography, as well as Chapter Three of the text book.
You may be asked to
deduce some exam answers beyond the exact parameters of this study guide, but all test material will
draw from the terms, concepts, events, and places listed below.
There will be 50 multiple choice
questions (at two points each), including five mapping questions and three two-point bonus questions
and you will have 90 minutes to take the exam. Bring a number two pencil, large scantron sheet, and
your student ID.
The test is in our regular classroom -- Howe-Russell-Kniffen 130.
A class review session will take place during the second half of our last class period on
Thursday, May 6th.
I will also hold “satellite” office hours in the Student Union on the Wednesday,
May 12th for students who have questions as they prepare for the exam.
Details will be given in
class on Thursday, May 6th.
Please do not digitally distribute copies of completed study guides to
your classmates and also note this study guide is notably different than the one provided students for
